Bottom Line: Each topic or category has several subcategorized topics.Real-time on-line report of analysis is produced immediately after entering each data and the administrator is able to monitor status of data input of each hospital.Backup of data as spread sheets can be accessed by the administrator and be used for academic works by any members of the KOSRO.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: To develop new on-line statistical program for the Korean Society for Radiation Oncology (KOSRO) to collect and extract medical data in radiation oncology more efficiently.

Materials and methods: The statistical program is a web-based program. The directory was placed in a sub-folder of the homepage of KOSRO and its web address is http://www.kosro.or.kr/asda. The operating systems server is Linux and the webserver is the Apache HTTP server. For database (DB) server, MySQL is adopted and dedicated scripting language is the PHP. Each ID and password are controlled independently and all screen pages for data input or analysis are made to be friendly to users. Scroll-down menu is actively used for the convenience of user and the consistence of data analysis.

Results: Year of data is one of top categories and main topics include human resource, equipment, clinical statistics, specialized treatment and research achievement. Each topic or category has several subcategorized topics. Real-time on-line report of analysis is produced immediately after entering each data and the administrator is able to monitor status of data input of each hospital. Backup of data as spread sheets can be accessed by the administrator and be used for academic works by any members of the KOSRO.

Conclusion: The new on-line statistical program was developed to collect data from nationwide departments of radiation oncology. Intuitive screen and consistent input structure are expected to promote entering data of member hospitals and annual statistics should be a cornerstone of advance in radiation oncology.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: Year of data is one of top category of entering data for the convenience of users. In the top each page of data input, user can change designated year at any time. As year changes, all sub-categories should be changed according to already entered data and user can call data at any year previously entered. This system can minimize labor to enter repeated data that is not changed from last year (Fig. 2).
